Katie Silcox on Ayurveda, Healing, Trauma, Inflammation + Spiritual Repair
Life is magical, mysterious, and unique but fragile. Humans can easily succumb to external influences and sometimes forget the sense of self and independence. That’s why we experience trauma in our lives. Our fragility and our failure to understand and establish that we are fragile beings are the main reasons we can be corrupted easily. Whether it’s a disease, emotions, decisions, etc., we must learn how to “repair” our spiritual selves.
Thus, we must fully understand how our spiritual, religious, and physical life works. We must achieve a higher state of being to help ourselves from being thoroughly affected by harmful external influences. In this episode, Katie Silcox explained how people develop traumas and why it’s important to learn how to repair them.
